On the evening of the 22 September, InExeter and Sancho’s will be hosting a night celebrating slow fashion that will highlight Autumn/Winter lines from selected independent businesses. We will also be showcasing designers and brands from the South West and providing a space for community groups to present their projects through fashion. Sancho’s will also launch of the South West Sustainable Design Award, celebrating the many sustainably minded designers, makers and community projects in the South west.
The evening will start with a drinks reception underneath the canopy of the Cathedral arches, where guests will be invited to browse stalls and presentations from the South West’s sustainable business community. At 7pm, we will take our seats to enjoy Exeter’s first Slow Fashion Show.
The last catwalk will consist of clothing provided by entrants to the Sustainable Design Awards, and after the show guest will be invited to vote for their favourite garments and designers. £1000 worth of prize money will be awarded to the winners.
